HI-TECH NEWS with #sony hashtag

YouTube has announced that it now supports HDR videos. HDR (or High Dynamic Range) has been getting a lot of attention lately since both the Xbox One S and the upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro support it. Now that YouTube videos support HDR content, it means that those with HDR-capable consoles will be able to show the world what these new systems are capable of.

Let’s face it, the state of virtual reality gaming isn’t looking so great these days. Though the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive managed to sell out rather quickly upon each of their respective releases, sales of the two devices have pretty much flatlined. The initial hype got early adopters to jump on board and buy units in droves, but the current sales numbers tell us that consumers just aren’t interested in VR gaming. Some believed this technology would usher in a new era of innovation for games, but it appears that VR is turning out to be the fad most (myself included) said it would be.

Sony announced an update to the curious-looking FES Watch with a new design. TheFES Watch U features an e-ink display and pairs with your phone. But the surprising part is that the band is also a flexible e-ink display, opening a brand new world of design possibilities — what an exciting time to be alive.

As soon as we found out the Pro Evolution 2017 Demo is available on PlayStation, we downloaded it and started playing. If you have a PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 or a PS3, you can do the same. Based on our two days with the demo, we think you won't be disappointed with PES 2017.

With FIFA 16, rival EA took the simulation route, trying to make the game as life-like as possible. The game has slowed down considerably, made defending a lot harder, and found the right balance between attack and defence. This makes FIFA extremely tough to compete against. So how does PES answer? By making the game as arcadey as possible of course.

The Playstation 4 is getting a facelift. Sony will reveal a new slimmer version of the PS4 next month, according to a Wall Street Journal report. The new console, unofficially dubbed the PS4 Slim, will have the same exact specifications as the original PS4 but with a new thinner design. It will compete directly with the Xbox One S. According to one analyst cited by the WSJ, the new slim model will also be sold at a cheaper price.

After many a leak, it was confirmed that Ubisoft will not be releasing a new Assassin's Creed game any time soon. That however, has not ruled out a re-release of its older games.

According to the eagle-eyed members of popular gaming forum NeoGAF, Assassin's Creed Ezio Collection will be making it to the PS4 and Xbox One. Information pertaining to this was discovered on the Game Rating and Administration Committee, a South Korean content rating board.

Everyone seems to know when the PS4.5 Neo is going to be unveiled. Everyone except Sony, apparently.

In June, The Wall Street Journal claimed that Sony would unveil both its 4K-ready gaming console and a slimmed down version of the PS4 at Tokyo Game Show (TGS).
